This paper is largely based upon the external features of mature larvae, but also provides an account of the ontogenetic changes that occur during larval life. The principal objective is to give comparative data on allodapine larvae, for use in examinations of their classification and of the functions of the peculiar larval projections and hairs which are characteristic of the group.
